Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Authors report their experience concerning the rehabilitation of patients with temporary or definitive colostomy. Mechanical and psychosocial implications as well as different rehabilitative methods are discussed and literature data are reviewed. Surgery should play a major role in this rehabilitation programme, either in terms of prevention or definitive treatment; nonetheless only through a multidisciplinary approach these patients will achieve a better quality of life.
